HALO: FAITH - Spartan Missiles by ApneicMonkey HALO: FAITH - Spartan Missiles by ApneicMonkey
In between surviving earthquakes, etc I've been doing a bit of work for a new short film set within the HALO universe called HALO: FAITH. The team at Majic Pictures have been doing a great job so far recreating Spartan armor and weapon props and have already completed principle photography on what will most likely be (roughly) 12 action packed minutes of film.

I was given free reign to develop some production art based on the script so I picked 4 scenes that I felt would really capture both what the team needed and what the fans (and hopefully everyone else) would want to see.

Follow the film's progress on their Facebook page here: [link]

The other 3 images I did can be found here:

It says the short film was cancelled on the wikia. Why is that?

The reason that was given was that Microsoft put an end to it all.

"Sir we are out of missiles!"  "Load the Spartans and fire them. That should cause some trouble." "The Spartans sir?" "Yes the Spartans." "Whateve'r you say sir." Spartan1:" This seemed like a good idea earlier." Spartan2:"Yeah well its too late now." Spartan3:" Did I mention that I hate heights!" Grunts: "Oh shi-" *BOOM*

I remember reading the halo reach book years ago, and they mentioned spartans can drop from space by locking armor, I like to think you did a fantastic job explaining this even if you didn't know about that. Well done.

Hey, I got a question.

Would you opposed to me making a re-make of this using SFM?

Basically position some TF2 ragdolls similarly to try and make something bad ass looking?

ApneicMonkey Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Actually, I would love to see that. :D HALO: Faith was never finished so it would be awesome to see this come to life in some way and I love SFM movies. :)

Right now I'm working on the poster alone, I'll work fully animating it later.

I think this will make an awesome project ^_^

I might use actual Spartan models if I can find some decent ones but until then Ill just use TF2 character interpretations of characters ^_^

hehe, there is a scene like this in the prologue of halo 4. except they didn't crush any grunts or covenant troops when they drop from space.

Yeah, I've seen that cutscene (still need to get the game though :p). The hilarious thing is that so many people were upset by my painting because it was apparently something Spartans couldn't do... and now it's in the latest game and official. :D

I heard about HALO: FAITH and its nice to see that someone as talented as you is helping with the project! But about the picture, i love the detail you went into with the explosion in the background and how you can see each particle of dirt rising. Faved because of pure awesomeness!

Thanks. :) Unfortunately, FAITH was cancelled because the SFX were a little too ambitious for the small team of people working on it. :(

good images but wouldn't the Spartans die on entry? master chief barely did it in at the beginning of halo 3 and that was only because he was using apiece of forerunner metal as a surf board..
